Virtualization has emerged as a feasible approach for embedded systems as it provides more secure platforms, improves software design quality and reduces costs. Nevertheless, real-time and memory constraints require the development of different techniques from those widely applied to enterprise computing. This work presents a hypervisor implementation approach with real-time support to the MIPS M5150 processor which supports hardware-assisted virtualization.
